GF, Vegan Spring Rolls & GF Chocolate Chewy Crispers!

The incredible recipe for these GF & Vegan Mango Avocado Spring Rolls is available in my new e-book cookbook, The Best of GlutenFreeHappyTummy, available HERE ---> The Best of GlutenFreeHappyTummy  - Only $2.99!

And you didn’t think I’d forget to share my outrageous GF cookies with you?!?
Ever since finding out about my new food allergies, I haven’t been able to enjoy my GF French Macaroons since they’re made with Almond flour, and guess who’s allergic to Almonds?! Yep…Lil Ole Me. SO! I’ve been tirelessly trying to recreate my French Macaroons without the Almond flour. It isn’t possible, until I can get my hands on Pistachio flour — so I’ve tried to create something similar, and I finally got it!
I think I’ll call them GF Chocolate Chewy Crispers.
Here’s what you need:
2 egg whites, beaten to stiff peaks
1/4 tsp Cream of Tartar
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 cups GF Rice Krispies
6 semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 heaping Tbsp peanut butter
1 1/2 tsp water
sprinkle of salt
1/4 cup powdered sugar
Preheat oven to 375. Beat egg whites in a stand mixer. When they become foamy, add your cream of tartar. When they form soft peaks, slowy add your sugar. Then beat on high for about 7 minutes, until stiff peaks form. Stop your mixer and sift in your powdered sugar and cocoa powder. Then, fold it in — about 35-40 folds. Finally, fold in your Rice Krispies.
On a parchment-paper-lined baking sheet, place about 2 Tbsp worth of batter. Then, reduce heat in the oven to 325 and bake for 5 minutes. Rotate pan, and bake 9 more minutes. Then, turn off the oven and leave them in the Off oven for 30 minutes. When you take them out of the oven, you need to eat one warm — or two:)
After they’ve cooled, drizzle with the glaze. Heat the 1st three ingredients for 10 seconds in the microwave, stir until melted. Then stir in powdered sugar until smooth. You may need to add more water to thin it out.

gorgeous texture -- crunchy outside with soft, chewy inside! YUM!
These are FANTASTIC!!!!!!! The outside has formed a meringue-like crunchy-crispy crust, and then the inside is marshmallow-y with crispy-chewy Rice Krispies mixed throughout. Sinlessly Decadent!

Happy Saturday from myself, and the 2 girls who rule the house!
FOr these cookies, I got to use my Kitchen Aid stand mixer! This is such an amazing appliance. And it has so many uses. Not only does it make whipping egg whites super easy, but it also makes cookies, and pasta...you name it! Here's the one I use:
